Try And Love

“Ofege” – a local Nigerian slang to describe an act of deviance!…..

“Ofege”….. A fantastic group of five 15-17 year old Nigerian lads just killin it on some psych-groove stellar jams!!! CIRCA 1973….

I picked this record up today as a birthday gift for a friend, but couldn’t resist giving it a spin. I brought the portable turntable outside and put it on as I drank cold coffee in the sun. Though I was expecting more of a heavy afro beat / highlife vibe, i was surprised and in the end totally stoked by the straight up psychedelic west coast feel to the music!! Seeing as I myself am a west coast psychedelic being, Listening to this in the sunshine of a west coast summer put a smile on my face. I think ive listened to side A about 10 times now…. SO, i had to immortalize these summer jams for all. Please enjoy

…Here’s the first two tracks….

Ofege – “try and love”
